Photo Journal — San Francisco Bay


San Francisco Skyline by Night

San Francisco Skyline by Night

This week I’m just going to show off a couple of interesting places.  Today it’s San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge.   On Wednesday I’ll show you a little town that recently made the 10 friendliest cities list from Condé Nast Traveler — Telluride, Colorado.  And on Fun Photo Friday I’ll highlight half a dozen of my favorite photographs from these destinations.

Of course everybody’s favorite feature has to be the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, but there’s a lot more to San Francisco than that.  Take for instance the Transamerica Pyramid and Coit Tower.  And don’t think that daytime gives you the only opportunity at catching both.  A night shot is well worth the effort.

If you do decide to spend most of your time trying to catch the Golden Gate, don’t limit yourself to good weather and blue skies.  Drama may be found in the mists of the bay.

But not all the action takes place on the bridge.  Look beneath it as well.

Remember as well that speed isn’t everything.  There is also beauty to be found in the more mundane water craft of the area.

While the city of San Francisco boasts the skyline, focus across the bay for a more nature-oriented view of the area.
